SysProtect / syp.exe

File Name: syp.exe
Status: SysProtect should not be running at startup. It is likely a virus, spyware, trojan, or some other sort of malicious program. Use a virus scanner, and/or spyware removal tool to remove it.
Additional Info: SysProtect is detected as a "potentially unwanted program". It purports to be an system repair/maintenance application, but requires paid registration before any issues found can be fixed. Many of the "invalid" items found appear suspect. This has been reported to be distributed in wild via trojan Vundo. Other incarnations of this software exist with the same model and similar web presences (for example WinFixer).
